Franz Beckenbauer advises Bayern to sign Sami Khedira ahead of Arsenal or Chelsea [Bild]
Bild carry quotes from Franz Beckenbauer on Wednesday regarding in-demand Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira.
With Khedira’s future in Madrid in limbo amid the unresolved issue of the German World Cup winner signing a contract renewal, Arsenal and Chelsea have been rumoured to be chasing the midfielder all summer long.
Now, however, those Premier League suitors may be about to be pipped in their pursuit as momentum is building that Bayern Munich are set to swoop in.
Honorary Bayern Munich president Franz Beckenbauer has told Bild:
Khedira fits into any team. He would be a good fit [at Bayern Munich].
He is an incredibly strong player in the number six position. He could play alongside Schweinsteiger or Lahm. That would be perfect.
After Javi Martinez’s ruptured cruciate ligaments, and with Thiago Alcantara still a month away from returning to training, a move for Sami Khedira could make sense for Pep Guardiola before the transfer window closes.
